The module examines the intellectual framework of inductive inference, learning and prediction, data modelling, data mining, and the mathematical and algorithmic methods required for unsupervised classification (also called clustering), for supervised classification (e.g. using decision structures) and for other similar and related problems. It is about the mathematics behind the software, the algorithms implemented in the software, and how to write new software for inductive inference. MML is used to combat the overfitting problem and to balance model complexity v. the fit to the data.
